    All, I did a VCDS scan on my wife's '06 TDI yesterday after finishing the oil change and DSG service. The car has had terrible radio reception on all FM frequencies since we bought it last year. I found the following message...

    Torsion Value of 0?

    Gents, I did my timing belt a few weeks back, and checked my torsion value. It is "0". I have a hard time imagining that I actually got it directly on 0. My understanding is that a value outside of its range will show as 0. How can I determine mine is in the correct spot? I bought and used...

    Gents, in my search for a cheap car to work with, I came across a '99 Jetta TDI for $600. It needs a cylinder head. How much would one expect for a complete head?

    importing and assembling a 2.0L 16v PD TDI in a Caliber?

    Gents, I am about to move out of this ****hole town I am in and go back home. So, this means I need a bit of a commuter car to drive back and forth with. I like everything about my Caliber except the 2.4L (its a good motor once the RPMs get up, but fuel economy sucks then...) Anyway, has...

    How much power can be had out of a TD?

    Gents, I have found a cheapish Jeep pickup (Comanche) in the area, and it'd be a prime candidate for me to put in a VW TD (don't have the money or skills to do a TDI yet). Anyway, how much power (HP and Torque) can be got out of a 1.6TD or 1.9TD with what mods? Anybody got something I can...

    Is the Dodge Caliber a Pumpe-Duse unit or CRD?

    Alright guys, I'm just looking around on an other forum I visit, and the guys that are actually lucky enough to have one say that the Patriot and Caliber actually get a CRD engine. Is it a CRD TDI OR is it a Pumpe-Duse TDI? Its a VW sourced 2.0L is all I know, I wish I could get ahold of one...

    Alright ladies and gents, I'm on an extremely tight budget, but I want to build a small dune buggy or go kart.

    Will Hufeisens fit a Dodge Caliber?

    I have an '07 caliber R/T FWD with the factory 18 chrome wheels and am considering swapping them out for something that looks slightly different in the crowd. Do any of you know if the Hufeisens from a GTI will fit on a Caliber? Caliber bolt spacing is 5x114.3 and backspacing is 39-40 (cant...

    Looking for a small turbo diesel

    Alright gents, as you might have seen from my post in the TD forum, I am looking for some sort of small turbo diesel to go in an Opel Ascona A. I've been told that VW TDs are rare in the US, so I am exploring other turbo diesel options. What other car sized turbo diesels are available in the...

    What TDI is in the Calibers?

    Alright gents, I was looking around on Ebay the other day and came across a 2.0L TDI that "is used in the Calibers in Europe". My question is, what TDI is it? I know its a 2.0L and that's about it. Is it a Pumpe-Duse engine or is it a CRD (like they are bringing over here)? Anybody know...

    How much for a TD engine?

    Alright people, I've got a project car setting around that I am wanting to put a VW TD in when I get the time and money. So, I need to know, how much will a used TD set me back? I need everything to make it run (Well, minus the transmission, since its going into a RWD car with a torque tube...

    TDI Caliber?

    Alright guys, I just bought a Dodge Caliber R/T about a month ago, and am loving it so far! However, in the future quite a bit, I'd like to find another one and TDI it. (Or if they bring a diesel over, I'll just buy it.) How hard would it be to TDI a car that has a VW CRD engine in Europe...

    mTDI gas mileage and power?

    Ladies and Gentlemen, as you all know, I'm setting on an Opel Ascona (family heirloom type deal) that I'd like to restore and am beginning to, without an engine. The stock 1.9L Opel CIH motor leaves much to be desired. Power sucks (about 98 HP and 112 lb/ft of tourque), reliability sucks (the...

    A new project I'm about to start
